The go to trend in wallpapers right now is tropical wallpaper, and we love it at Audenza.  I’ve always been a big fan of wallpaper as I do love a pattern, it gives so much more depth and vibrancy to a room.  The top 10 tropical wallpapers we have picked for you is just a taster to get you into the mood, from dark and moody, to fun and quirky, to elegant and restrained.  The choice is yours, but they are all wow!

1. Osborne & Little – Palmaria

Osborne & Little – Palmaria Wallpaper

The Palmaria wallpaper, by Osborne & Little, is a beautiful large scale palm leaf design in a subtle bronze and teal colourway.  Perfect for adding richness and texture to a room.  Named after the island of Palmaria in the Ligurian sea.  You can almost feel the warm sea breeze!

2. Laura Hyden – Cheetah Wallpaper Mustard

The Cheetah wallpaper by Laura Hyden, for Graduate Collections is a richly coloured exotic wallpaper, perfect for those of you with a taste of the extraordinary.  A pricey one at £125 per roll, but if you want to set a tropical scene well worth it.

3. Caselio – Jungle Palmes Wallpaper

Fresh, exciting and very Miami Beach meets tropical.  Mint green and blush pink is very much on trend for the coming year, perfect for a bright breezy zing of colour.  The Jungle Palmes wallpaper, by Caselio is £35 per roll. So not a bank breaker.

4. Bonnie & Bold – Banana Leaf

Bonnie & Bold – Banana Leaf Wallpaper

The Banana Leaf wallpaper, by Bonnie & Bold, is the striking option for those of you with a sense of adventure.  It comes in different lengths and widths, and they also offer a bespoke service.

5. Emma J Shipley – Kruger Wallpaper

Emma J Shipley – Kruger Wallpaper

Kruger wallpaper, by British designer Emma J Shipley for Clarke & Clarke is another adventurous design. Shipley is known for her stunning designs that make a bold statement.  I love the imagery of this one but if the orange is too striking for you it is available in a range of subtler tones.   At £51 per roll it’s a mid-price range paper.

6. World of Wallpaper – Congo Geometric Wallpaper Pink Holden

World of Wallpaper - Congo Geometric Wallpaper Pink Holden

The Congo Geometric wallpaper, by World of Wallpaper is beautifully rendered in soft pink and green with a rose gold trellis design.  Exotic birds and lizards climb up the palm fronds for a hint of the curious.  Also available in a matte black background for an intense and dramatic room scheme.

7. Albany – Flamingos

Fun, quirky and bound to bring a smile to your face.  From the Albany Wow 2017 collection this is a steal at £18.98 a roll!  It’s a vinyl wallpaper so a bit more user friendly than most.

8. Graham & Brown – Yasuni Midnight Wallaper

Graham & Brown – Yasuni Midnight Wallaper

Intense, moody and full of drama for a bold statement. Yasuni Midnight, by Graham & Brown is a striking tropical wallpaper in luscious shades of green and blue on a midnight base.  I liked the fact that they recommend paint shades to co-ordinate with the wallpaper, which makes matching up a lot easier.  A good tip on the review section was to darken the ends of the rolls before unwrapping them to prevent white lines on the joins when pasting.  At £40 per roll it’s in the mid price range.

9. Happy Wall – Palms Gold Cali Vibes 8 Wall Mural

Happy Wall – Palms Gold Cali Vibes 8 Wall Mural

A slightly different option here as Palms Gold is a mural from Happy Wall, so you order it to fit the size of your wall.  A very large design that would be amazing for a big space. Such a sense of grandeur and elegance, a pared down design in calming tones of gold and white.  But at £48 per m2 it’s not a cheap option!

10. Cole and Son – Palm Jungle

Cole and Son – Palm Jungle Wallpaper

And last, but not least, Palm Jungle, by Cole & Son, in my garden room.  I love this wallpaper more each day – for its sense of calm, for its beautiful tones of green, and for its ability to bring the outdoors in.  What more can I say?  And yes, I did pay for it (at £100 per roll, not cheap), so I am completely without bias here.

So, that’s our round up of tropical wallpapers for you, from Art Deco inspired to a fantasy world.  Whether you are looking for the subtleness of waving palm fronds or a full on exotic animal experience there is plenty of designs out there.  If you like a design but not the colourway then each design is available in different colourways, which dramatically alters the look.  I hope this post inspires you invite tropical wallpapers into your home.
